Tito Ortiz isn’t letting up on his conspiracies as he continues to be an anti-mask advocate.
The former UFC light heavyweight champion and current Mayor Pro Tem of Huntington Beach has long been outspoken about COVID-19 as well as the use of masks as he has floated a number of conspiracy theories over the past year.
He even clashed with the Huntington Beach City Council after refusing to wear a mask during their meetings before he eventually had to cave in to the pressure and complaints.
That said, he still isn’t a fan of them as can be seen from his latest interview where he pleaded with parents to stop making their children wear masks.
“If I gotta be here at Huntington and help each one of these people have the focus to not to wear a mask. I mean, please, people. Parents, please — take your kids’ masks off,” Ortiz said. “You’re ruining the health of their lungs, their immune system. The kids are not going to catch COVID, man.
“I’m not a doctor but let me tell you, I’m a person who has lived through life. Take your mask off your kids.
Ortiz Won’t Be Taking Vaccine
In addition to being anti-mask, Ortiz is also unsurprisingly not a fan of vaccines either. When asked what happened to the flu this year, Ortiz responded:
“What happened to the flu? 98% has been erased,” he added. “That’s kind of strange, huh? 98%? I’ve never taken a flu shot, I won’t take this vaccine shot. I don’t get a sh*t. They gotta pin me down.
“I know I shouldn’t have to be vicious like that because we live in America, I pay taxes. And I pay a lot of taxes.”

It still remains surreal how he ended up in his current position.
